IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

When using an electrical appliance, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:

15. Never leave your blender unattended while it is running.

16. When blending HOT liquids, remove measured pour lid (center piece of cover) to allow steam to escape.

1. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

17. Twist on locking ring firmly. Injury can result if moving blades accidentally become exposed.

2. To protect against the risk of electrical shock, do not put motor base of blender in water or other liquid.

18. Do not use an extension cord with this unit. Doing so may result in fire, electrical shock, or personal injury.

3. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.

Regarding your cord set: A longer cord has been provided so that you will have flexibility in positioning your Cuisinart SmartPower

Premier 600-Watt Blender near an electrical outlet. Exercise care when using the longer cord, to avoid entangling or tripping over the cord. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter or tabletop, where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over. Excess cord should be stored in the cord storage area at the back of the blender base to avoid injury caused by the longer cord.

4. Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning or removing contents from blender jar.

Never put hands into the blender jar or container, or handle the blades with appliance plugged in.

5. Avoid contact with moving parts.

6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return appliance to nearest Cuisinart service facility for examination, repair, and/or mechanical or electrical adjustment.

7. The use of attachments, including canning or ordinary jars, not

recommended or sold by Cuisinart may cause fire, electrical shock, or risk of injury to persons.

8. Do not use outdoors.

9. Do not let cord hang over edge of counter or table or touch hot surfaces.

10. Keep hands and utensils out of jar while blending, to reduce the risk of severe injury to persons or damage to blender itself. A rubber or plastic spatula may be used but must be used only when the blender is turned OFF.

11. When blender is in ON mode, and LED lights are flashing or glowing, do not touch cutting assembly, interfere with blade movement, or remove blender jar cover. Accidentally touching a speed button may activate the blender.

12. BLADES ARE SHARP. HANDLE CAREFULLY.

13. To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutting assembly on base unless the blender jar is properly attached.

14. Always operate blender with the cover in place.

19. Wash the blender jar, cutting assembly, locking ring, and cover before first use.

20. WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK

OR FIRE, DO NOT REMOVE THE BASE PANEL. NO USER

SERVICEABLE PARTS ARE INSIDE. REPAIR SHOULD BE

DONE ONLY BY AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL.

21. WARNING: FLASHING LIGHT INDICATES READY TO OPERATE.

DO NOT TOUCH BLADES.
